Labette Center is Committed to the safety of clients and staff
The safety of the clients and staff remain Labette Center’s top priority as we move through the realities of a global pandemic. With that in mind, the Center has worked diligently to maintain and enhance all sanitizing process. All surfaces are cleaned and sanitized on a regular basis, hand sanitizer is available throughout our buildings and social distancing will be maintained. Clients and visitors are asked to call Labette Center upon arriving at our facility to notify staff they are here for an appointment. Staff will let the client know when it is time to enter the building for their appointment. Clients and visitors will be asked a series of questions and their temperature will be taken. The individual will then be admitted into the waiting room to wait for the scheduled appointment. Clients and visitors will wear a facemask when inside the facility. If the client does not have a facemask, Labette Center will provide one. Guidelines for in person appointments are subject to change based on recommendations from KDHE and Labette County Health Department.
Additional steps that have been taken to ensure the safety of clients and staff include new lobby furniture that is COVID-19 compliant and easily sanitized. New flooring has been installed in three of the Center's facilities to ensure the cleaning process can take place swiftly and effectively. Additionally, all bathroom facets throughout all five locations have been replaced with a touchless system to illiminate touch points and reduce the risk of infection spread. Zoom capability in the facility is available for clients who do not have access to technology. For these appointments clients may enter the facility and utilize a "Zoom Room" to have a televideo appointment with their provider. In office appointments will maintain six feet distance during appointments and the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) to ensure safety to both patients and staff. Finally, the Center has purchased a sanitizing fogging machine that is used in all facilities and Center vehicles a minimum of one time per month, and as needed if infection arises.
Throughout this difficult time, Labette Center has remained available to our clients. The Center will continue to serve the community through telehealth and telephone services. Any individual who is experiencing signs or symptoms of a mental illness or are experiencing a mental health crisis may contact our office to set up services.
